My Visit to Smt.Rajeswari Radhakrishnan Charitable Trust


Today I went to Smt.Rajeswari Radhakrishnan Charitable Trust, Nanganallur along with my father. Managing Trustee Mr Radhakrishnan has been requesting me for a long time to visit their Home for the visually challenged girls. Finally today I could make it. All the seven girls are from remote villages of Tamilnadu. Their parents are not taking care of them. He brought them to Chennai and  providing accommodation & education to them. He is rendering a great service. I had an interactive conversation with the Girls with the help of his daughter who translated my story (which I narrated in English) to Tamil and explained to them. They were very much inspired and inquired me about how did I overcome the challenges related to my physical disability. I told them about the visually challenged girls who successfully participated  in last year's paralympic Swimming Competition. They expressed their desire to learn swimming. I promised them to arrange training. I am going to request Govt. to provide coaching for them in Velachery pool on weekends during non-peak hours. Hope they will support.
